Enhanced detection and response service offering further empowers MSP partners through new integration, addition of SOAR, and more.

Strong points:

  • Barracuda introduces integration between Barracuda CloudGen Firewall and Barracuda XDR as well as detection rule mapping with the MITER ATT&CK(R) framework to quickly close detection gaps.
  • The integration of Barracuda XDR and CloudGen Firewall allows managed service providers (MSPs) to gain visibility and insights, and help increase efficiency with 24×7 SOC services.
  • Barracuda is also enhancing its Security Operations Center (SOC) with Security Orchestration, Automation and Response (SOAR) to ensure faster response time.

CAMPBELL, Calif., September 13, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Barracuda, a trusted partner and leading provider of cloud-first security solutions, today announced continued innovation of its XDR platform with integration between Barracuda CloudGen Firewall and Barracuda XDR; mapping threat detection rules against MITER ATT&CK(™) frame; and adding security orchestration, automation, and response (SOAR) capabilities to its security operations center (SOC).

The heightened threat landscape has created an environment where it is no longer a question of “if” but “when” an attack will occur. Over the past 12 months, Barracuda researchers have identified and analyzed 106 high-profile cases ransomware attacks and found that the dominant targets are still in five key sectors: education, municipalities, health, infrastructure and finance. The number of ransomware attacks has increased year over year in each of these five verticals, and attacks against other sectors have more than doubled from what we saw last year.

Spear phishing is also on the rise and according to the recent Barracuda report, Spear Phishing: Top Threats and Trends Vol. seventhe average employee of a small company with less than 100 employees will experience 350% more social engineering attacks than an employee of a large company.

With the increasing frequency and sophistication of cyberattacks, having standalone security solutions is no longer enough for partners to effectively protect their customers. To be successful, partners must enable businesses to achieve the baseline cybersecurity hygiene required by today’s environment. This cybersecurity hygiene includes proactive monitoring with extensive visibility, the creation of concentric rings of security layers, and 24/7 detection and response as cybercriminals work around the clock.

With the new integration between Barracuda XDR and CloudGen Firewall, partners can gain visibility and insights by offering 24/7 SOC Services, and increase efficiency by reducing product silos, alleviating alert fatigue, and streamlining the management of their customers’ environments. New detection rule mapping in the MITER ATT&CK® framework provides the Barracuda SOC team with guidance and the ability to quickly close detection gaps. Introducing SOAR into the Barracuda SOC infrastructure ensures faster response time, streamlines processes and, most importantly, provides increased protection in the event of a cyberattack.

Barracuda acquired SKOUT Cybersecurity in 2021 to further enable partners with their security offerings. Over the past year, Barracuda has integrated the Barracuda Email Protection Wallet, and now Barracuda CloudGen Firewall, with Barracuda XDR services.

The Barracuda XDR offering spans Endpoint Security, Email Security, Cloud Security, Network Security, and Server Security, enabling partners to create security services that align with today’s business environments and deliver holistic cybersecurity by as a service to their customers.


“We are always looking for ways to empower partners, and especially MSPs, to take their business to the next level and an important part of that is enabling them to confidently secure their customers’ environments,” said neal bradburySVP, MSP Business at Barracuda. “Earlier this year, we completed the integration of Barracuda XDR into our email protection portfolio. Now, integrating the Barracuda CloudGen firewall with Barracuda XDR, mapping detection rules to the MITER ATT&CK framework, and adding SOAR to our SOC infrastructure, we can provide comprehensive visibility into multiple attack surfaces through the Barracuda XDR dashboard, while increasing detection speed and response time through our SOC.”

“Enterprise security requirements must continue to change as the global threat landscape evolves. As MSPs, our customers expect us to provide comprehensive security services that not only prevent, but also detect and respond to proactively address cyber threats. Not something most managed service providers are designed for. The Barracuda XDR solution combines data from our security stacks through a single dashboard view, giving us the visibility we need to we need to proactively monitor our customers’ infrastructure.Its team of security experts and mature SOC is a strong differentiator we can rely on to expand our service to support 24-hour detection and response. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week,” said Richard FlandersCustomer Strategy Director, Aura Technology.
